Megadeth Forced to Leave Stage in Croatia After Fans Launch Rock Attack

Thrash metal veterans Megadeth were forced offstage at Croatia’s Metalfest earlier this week after angry fans began pelting the bands with rocks during their set.

Most of the instigators were angry WASP fans, likely hostile because rumors began circulating that WASP were refusing to play after frontman Blackie Lawless had an argument with Dave Mustaine. No confirmation of the events in question is available.

Mustaine was reportedly struck in the head with a rock during the beginning of Megadeth’s set, causing the band to leave the stage and cancel the remainder of their performance.

Megadeth will be performing at this weekend’s Download festival in the U.K.

    Wait, there are WASP fans?  Oh yeah, it’s in Eastern Europe, they still listen to Ace of Base there.

  • Jmtfm1019

    Those idiots didnt get wasp did they? I hope to hell not. You dont assault another band just to get them off stage to see another that probably isnt even playing. I say f*** those idiots, they should have just ended the show there to teach the crowd a lesson.

  • Floyd Mungaray

    Congratulations, butthurt WASP fans. You chased away a better band than your meh 80’s band just because you are whiny butthurt fanbitches. I hope you’re proud of yourselves, because now there is a high chance your country won’t get Megadeth ever again.

    I Love W.A.S.P. and I Just recently seen the Mighty Megadeth at Point Fest in St. Louis. Killer set. Don’t blame W.A.S.P. for the actions of a bunch of idiots. and Floyd you are right, I wouldn’t play their crappy country if I had a band.

    nice to see that wasp was kind enough to personally fly all ten of their fans to the show!

  • Sam Geese

    Wow.  A bunch of European experts here. 
    If any one of you sissy-boys stepped foot in their country with those attitudes, you get the beat-down of your lives.  Pussys.

  • Candi Boone

    Typical east European shithole.

    • John J

      Typical uneducated americans. Croatia is NOT a shithole or 3rd world country. These were people from neighbouring countries coming over to cause shit at a show not in their own country. Same trouble happened here from american assholes causing fights at heavy montreal.

  • Rattlehead666

    this was Blackie’s fault. the crowd should have been pissed at him, NOT Megadeth. at least they played…or at least tried to.

  • Rickmazz

    Look you all know how passionate Metal fans are.  This has lead to riots and death on too many occasions.  This is just another example of how deep love can turn on you in any moment and in any country.  People need to chill period.
